More than likely (if you’re lucky) the rear axle shaft splines are worn out. Pretty common on these Foreman’s due to left rear wheel seal / bearing failure.

Thank you ,I will check it out
No problem, been there done it got the tee shirt. The splines aren't that deep to begin with. New vs old. It would go in 4x4 but nada in 2x4. It's a decent job to do it all right, but fairly straight forward.
